Michael Moore’s Theory On Why Women Are Better Than Men Gets Destroyed By Woman

Published

Filmmaker Michael Moore got schooled by a feminist after trying to prove women are better than men, and the internet is here for it. The controversial filmmaker took to Twitter to explain his theory only to get brutally shut down by writer Jessica Ellis. In a series of tweets, she brilliantly pulled apart his ridiculous claim before giving him a lesson in sexism.

Girls Better Than Boys

Moore started off by tweeting women were better than men because “no women ever invented an atomic bomb, built a smoke stack, initiated a Holocaust, melted the polar ice caps or organized a school shooting.”

We bet he wished he hadn’t because only a few moments later Ellis fired back with a string of tweets proving just how “spectacularly” ignorant Moore’s statement was.

No Evil Women?

She sent the filmmaker a female example for every crime he mentioned, starting with Elizabeth R. Graves, a pioneer in physics who played a crucial role in the development of nuclear weapon design. She then moved to Mary Walton, a 19th-century American inventor who patented a new style of smokestack.

Next was Ilse Koch, a commandant of Buchenwald concentration camp during World War II. Koch oversaw the slaughter of thousands of Jews and enemies of the Nazis during the Holocaust.

In his response to Moore’s claim no woman was responsible for melting the polar ice caps, she presented Ceri Powell, head of global exploration for energy company Shell.

Lastly, she pointed out that the first modern school shooter was actually a teenage girl called Brenda Spencer. In January 1979, Spencer opened fire at children waiting outside Cleveland Elementary School injuring eight students and killing principal Burton Wragg and custodian Mike Suchar.

Erasing History

After proving Moore wrong, she moved on to educate the filmmaker on why his statement was so damaging for women, saying: “Women have faced a boatload of oppression at the hands of the patriarchy, but you do not get to erase us. We are not ivory monuments.”

She then called him out for “telling women” there is no dark side to them and they are “pure as cream” and claimed it was “detrimental” to their mental health. She continued: “To suggest so, you not only remove our agency and erase us from history, you cauterize our ability to make choices.”

It’s Not Easier

Not finished yet, she pointed out that women make the same choice as men to be good or bad: “Being ethically good is no easier for us than it is for men. It’s time you stopped acting like goodness comes out of our vaginas. We choose.”

While Ellis later claimed she was “vaguely ashamed” of attacking someone she “vehemently” admired, Twitter loved the Moore takedown. One pointed out: “Women are responsible for fewer atrocities purely because they’ve held the reins of power for less time, not because they are better people.”

These Celebrity Doppelgangers From The Past Have Us Seeing Double

Time travel is a mystifying concept. Much like the idea of extraterrestrial life, it has captured the human imagination for as long as we have existed. Today, it’s at the forefront of famous movie plots, most famously ‘Back to the Future,’ and pops up in late-night conversations about the universe and meaning of life. As of now, scientists have not been able to confirm whether traveling through time is possible, and though there isn’t any kind of hard evidence that proves human beings can time travel, these photos of celebrities alongside what appear to be them in other time periods will sure make you wonder.
